I just went to get a battery checked and found that I was getting 12.9v across the battery terminals while running even at high revs (with electric radiator fan spinning).
The battery discharge indicator is turning off as the engine starts up. Could charging to just 12.9v damage the battery? Should I repair or replace a new civic alternator immediately ?
Fixing this problem by buying a new alternator for my civic will probably cost me $66 at least.
Any help or a point in the right direction to find one would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
